(PatriotWise.com)- Over the Memorial Day weekend, Florida State Representative Anthony Sabatini tweeted the teasing message “The result of the #ArizonaAudit is going to be earth shattering,” adding “Get ready!”
It is unclear what inside information a Florida lawmaker would have regarding the ongoing audit happening on the other side of the country. Thus far, Sabatini has offered no followe up to his May 29 tweet.
One June 1, auditors announced that they had made it through one million of the 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County.
According to Arizona Republican Chairwoman Kelli Ward, there are currently discussions being held among the Arizona Senate and the auditors over the possibility of hiring the California-based election transparency group Citizens Oversight to run an electronic recount on the digital images of ballots for every single race on the ballot in Maricopa County.
Ward explained that those totals could then be used in every race to compare totals with official totals for Maricopa County and from the audit itself.
The decision to add this California-based group will ultimately be left up to Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann and the team she’s put in place to oversee the audit.
Ward expects the barrage of attacks against the Maricopa County audit will only “ramp up considerably” the closer the auditors get to completing the ballot counting.
On June 1 three Republican lawmakers from Pennsylvania arrived in Phoenix to meet with members of the Arizona legislature and tour the Veterans Memorial Coliseum where the audit is taking place.
Despite what many believe, State Senator Fann has said that the Maricopa County audit is not an attempt to “overturn the results” of the 2020 Presidential election. But even if that was the objective, it cannot be done.
Once the electoral votes are certified and the President sworn in, there is simply no legal or constitutional mechanism to “overturn” the 2020 Presidential race.
According to Senator Fann, the purpose of conducting this audit is to both restore trust in the electoral process and have an informed framework from which to consider any potential changes to state election laws.
